Simile to Metaphor

Word play: Write a simile (comparing two things using like or as). Change it to a metaphor by removing the words like or as. Enjoy the beauty you create with words!

Similes

The ship looked like a bright, white smile on the still water.

The room was as foggy like sweat on a boxer running down in rivulets from the window panes.

The trees were lit like a fire in the evening sunlight.

The mountain was like a corpse shrouded in a foggy veil.

The weaving looked like it was breathing, undulating in the still air.

The light below the yellow leaves looked like the glow from a candle flame.

Metaphors

The ship was a bright smile on the still, dark water.

The fog in the room was sweaty, running down the window pane of glass skin.

The trees were fire in the evening sunlight.

The mountain was a corpse, shrouded in a foggy veil.

The weaving was breathing, undulating in the still air.

The light below the yellow leaves was a glow of candle flame.
